Who's Catherine Nevin?
A convicted murderer of her husband Tom Nevin.

And who's Tom Nev... never mind.

He has a fair point. We were the most successful team in Ulster last year and run up scores against any of the challengers. Now Iím not expecting plaudits but if the suggestion is that we played badly and below ourselves last year then Down, Armagh, Donegal and Derry must have been absolutely f**king tragic. Hartes getting a lot of flak for being tactically naive and behind the times but if you believe that then how far back are mcgeeney, Gallagher, o rourke and burns if they canít get within touching distance of them??

Bar Donegal, everyone expected Tyrone to beat Derry Down and Armagh fairly handy (5-10 points). But not Dublin. It's naive of Harte to think he can beat them playing the same system (ie. with 1 forward). Sidey was merely asking what the rest of us are thinking.

Nolan is a poor host, especially for the type of show he's doing. Can't control the debate.

I have to say though, shows like Nolan's is just keeping all the crap going in this place. Polarised views every morning from bigoted arseholes. Why doesn't he have real debates about stuff that actually matters, and maybe the bigots will go away?

General discussion / Re: Disgraceful front page in The Irish News

The GAA column's section of the Irish News is fairly good and they do cover GAA in general very well although Heaney was never replaced properly. They should do a few more feature interviews though like the one with Joey Cunningham which I thought was excellent.

The news section I rarely bother with, if it wasn't for GAA I wouldn't buy the paper and I reckon a lot of people are in the same boat. The front page has got way too sensationalis, and this latest headline is just one of many in recent years.

Joey Cunningham interview was good. Interviews from past players are the only thing worth reading in papers now though. Sure current players and managers say feck all.

GAA is good though. Plus you need to buy it to see who's dead.

There are no sides ffs! all in your head. Sure Paisley was giving off for years about their agenda of attacking DUP.. It means feck all anyways, as people will vote regardless of whats said on those radio programs for their orange or green reps!

Hugo is the man, yes he is , with his wee buns and cuppa tea

There is an underlying Brit agenda with the bbc and the TV/radio in the North. But it's hardly surprising when this is a british controlled statelet. They're hardly going to be pro-SF are they?

Recent example was the Haggerty case. Collusion up to the neck with queen Lizzie's forces all over the news. Next day, it's "oh look over here!"... Stakeknife!!! Typical diversion at the appropriate time from pro-Brit/unionist media.

The name of the station kinda gives it away which side they're on.

Tyrone might be good enough to win ulster again but they won't win the AI unless they tweak their system. That's what Sidey was inferring.

If Tyrone are whooped by Dublin again in this years semi playing the exact same system, is Sidey going to get his head ripped off by Harte for asking the same question in 2019?

Gerry Kelly walks the Camino, Radio Six Counties/Ulster 12.30pm today if anyone is interested.

Still have a hankering to do it myself at some stage. Will be interesting to hear what he has to say.

Get the bus to Portadown and walk back to Newry along the towpath. It will lift your soul. The idea of the Canal was first pitched by engineers working for king William as he marched down to the battle of the Boyne in 1689. The Canal was finished circa 1740.

That walk would tell you if you are ready for the Camino. Iíd love to do it. Some people stay in hostels while others stay in hotels. The latter seems to be against the spirit of the walk.

I haven't walked the Newry canal path but I've done it on bicycle. It's not a bad spin. Would be much better if canal was properly cleaned up and in use.

I suppose it would be a good tester for anyone thinking of doing the Camino. I think it's about 17 miles so you'd need to be covering that sort of distance on the Camino every day.
